Welcome to February and Super Bowl Sunday! It hardly feels like we’re already through January since we haven’t had too much bad weather. Though we are supposed to get a bunch of snow today.
January was pretty laid back (I loved it!). But February seems to be filling up quickly! This week we have a pediatrician appointment, Kindermusik, dance, grocery shopping, parent teacher conferences and the big kids start swimming lessons. We are also getting a new dishwasher (I may be just slightly excited about this).
For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to plan a lot of kitchen projects this week too. I’ve already got a bunch started this morning! This week I’m making sourdough soft pretzels (already rising), soaked graham crackers (already in the dehydrator), refried beans (already cooking), soaked gluten free bread, coconut milk ice cream, oatmeal, oat milk (already fermenting), crackers, muffins, pancakes and quinoa milk.
I’m still doing daily broth for my little one. And I finally started putting some fermented cod liver oil on her before bed. That should help boost her vitamin D levels. She now has the nasty cold we’ve all been working through. So she hasn’t been sleeping well. Add teething to that and you’ve got one tired mommy.
We’re kind of at a stand still with my son. He’s had some major flairs lately and we’re not sure why. I just noticed last night that his eczema is back in addition to a bunch of other symptoms. I’m not sure if we’ll have to take all dairy back out or not.
This week is all about Valentine’s Day treats!!! You won’t want to miss it. There is something for everyone.
